14° or 15° C outside and observing/imaging in my shirtsleeves! All the windows open at home and just two days before midwinter - Has the world gone crazy!!
My first Sun image since the 1st November - that's how bad (if mild) the weather has been this winter.
A stack of 40 from 72 frames taken with the Sun just 13° above the horizon. 120mm achromat and Canon 1100D ISO 100 and 1/1000 sec exposure. Baader solar film 5.0.
